McINTOSH, Ala. (AP) - Two Alabamians have died in all-terrain vehicle accidents in two days.

State troopers say 15-year-old Tyler Lamar Knapp of McIntosh was killed Tuesday night when his four-wheel ATV crashed. The accident happened on Sank Town Road eight miles southwest of McIntosh.

Troopers say 37-year-old Antonio Farrow of Wetumpka was killed Monday night when his four-wheel ATV left the road and hit a tree. The accident happened on Elmore County Rod 348 about eight miles north of Wetumpka.

State troopers say ATVs are designed for off-road use and can be difficult to control on paved roads.
